    Default Why is Latitude so far off in locating people?

    The wife is sitting right next to me right now with her phone on but Latitude has her miles and miles away. It usually shows my position pretty accurately but it's always way off on her location.

    Is there some kind of adjustment/upgrade that needs to occur before it reports with more accuracy? I've "refreshed" but still the reading is WAY off.

    Any ideas?

    Does she have problems with GPS normally? I've also read that Latitude usually doesn't update location very frequently, was it putting her in a place that she had been to that day? Also, what phone does she have?

    She has the Eris.

    Per your suggestion, I checked the GPS settings and they were turned off. Now it works. Thanks!

    Yeah, she can leave the GPS on, however, battery life will suffer with apps like latitude that pull GPS periodically (but you already know that )
